Emilio Granell, Carlos D. Martínez-Hinarejos. Read4SpeechExperiments: A Tool for Speech Acquisition from Mobile Devices. Proceeding of IberSPEECH 2016, 2016. pp. 411-417.

We present Read4SpeechExperiments, a free software tool to ease the acquisition of speech utterances from mobile devices for automatic speech recognition experiments. The main features of this tool are the following: the text sentences to read can be presented as plain text or as text images, the utterances can be recorded either by using the internal or an external microphone, the recorded speech utterances can be shared through any communication application available on the mobile device (such as traditional e-mail), and moreover, this tool includes a handsfree mode to allow the speech acquisition in those environments where speakers can not have the mobile device on their hands (for instance, driving a vehicle). This tool is developed for mobile devices with the Android operating system, it can be installed from the Google Play and F-Droid platforms, and the source code is publicly available in a GitLab repository.
